Plus New Regional Event in Cowra October 17

Registrations are now open for FORM Dance Projects’ beloved annual youth dance festival, Sharp Short Dance.

Providing a rare opportunity for aspiring choreographers and dancers to display their talents in a supportive environment, Sharp Short Dance is returning to the stage, both live and digitally, in 2021.

Sharp Short Dance will see more than fifty dance works created and performed by young dancers and choreographers 21 years and under.
